  • During India's second innings, Pujara was looking on song at 70, and seemed destined for a big score to help his side post a huge total

In a turn of event which proved why he is arguably the greatest spinner of all time, Shane Warne, while commentating during the first Test between Australia and India in Adelaide, was bang-on in his analysis of how to get the prized wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara.

During India's second innings, Pujara was looking on song at 70, and seemed destined for a big score to help his side post a huge total. He had already scored a century in the first innings, and signs were ominous that another was to follow.

But his innings was cut short by some sensational bowling by the GOAT - Nathan Lyon. In the 88th over of India's second innings, Lyon was bowling beautifully. After the first five balls, which troubled Pujara, Warne from the commentary box heaped praise on the Australian off-spinner, and predicted that if he bowls the last ball in the same manner, he may very well remove the Indian batsman.

"This is only the best over Lyon has bowled today. And all he has done is bowled at the right spot and had the right field. He could get the wicket here if this just lands this last one, he has build it up beautifully," said Warne before the wicket eventually fell.
